Bending Branches Angler Classic

Suggested Retail:
$149.95 USD

Formerly the Slice Angler. Kayak fishing can be an addictive pastime. It sneaks up on you quietly, then completely hooks you. But getting there should be at least half the fun, and the Angler Classic is a first-class way to get there. A face-lift for the previous Slice Angler and a step-up from our entry level paddles, the Angler Classic is slightly lighter, but with classic Branches strength and style. With features like a tape measure on the shaft and a hook retrieval built right into the blade, the benefits are more than efficiency and convenience. Bringing together classic Bending Branches quality and a new look, the Angler Classic looks good in all waters. It will help you bring your A-game to your new obsession. Enjoy having the right blade color for your trip. The Sage Green blade helps you sneak up on the fish, while the Autumn Orange blade is a bright option for any waters. The 2-piece Angler Classic is available with our PLUS ferrule which gives invitee feathering options, or with a snap-button ferrule.

If you are looking for a new paddle there are many things to consider. Is it light weight? Is it functional for what kind of paddling one wants to do. Is it in my price range. Myself, I am a hardcore kayak fisherman. I fish in shore, off shore, and everywhere in between. I fish from a Jackson Big Tuna and a Hobie Outback so I know what uses I have for my paddle in both kayaks.

First let me tell you what paddle I use. I use the Angler Classic by Bending Branchs. This paddle has many functions that work with my kind of paddling. It is an affordable paddle that is light enough to allow me to fish all day, has a measurement device to measure my catch, and even a lure retriever that comes in handy when I catch the ever elusive tree fish. (Occupational hazzard when fishing the mangroves for snook). One thing that may be missed when picking a paddle is how it can help one be more visible on the water. Both of my kayaks are camo colored which are darker colors that don’t stand out on the water. Recently while kayaking off shore with a few friends we drifted apart and we were having trouble locating each other due to the 3 foot rollers that day. When we finally reconnected my friends said the only thing they could see was my orange Bending Branches paddle attached to the side of my kayak. This made me realize that the color of the paddle can be as useful as the other attributes of the paddle. Think of it this way the more visible on the water the safer one will be and nothing is more visible then waving my paddle around as I am paddle my favorite water way with my bright orange Angler Classic.

I got my Yak, a Native Slayer 12 last January. Not exactly the best time to get a yak in Northern Michigan but I did. I didn't buy the paddle with it though knowing I wanted to shop around a bit for the right one for me. i finally decided on the Bending Branches Classic for its stiffness and adjust ability and the fact a friend was working at one of the local sports shops and could get me a good discount on it too. Once I was finally able to get on the water I was very happy with all my choices. The Paddle paired very well with my new yak and propelled me across the water easily and steadily. Highly recommended for someone starting out this is a mid level paddle that will last you many years.
